Upcoming Films

I have a lot of time on my hands today, so I thought I'd make a list of upcoming films I'd like to see. I know I won't get to all of them in the theater, but here they are, nevertheless.

Half Nelson opens soon in B'more. It looks good.

I'm super excited about the upcoming Nightmare Before Christmas in 3-D! With the glasses and everything!

There's a new Michel Gondry movie coming out called The Science of Sleep. I really didn't like Being John Malcovich or Adaptation. But I loved Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. If you haven't seen this movie, take of work early and rent it. You won't be sorry. You can watch the preview for The Science of Sleep here.

I don't know how I feel about a fiction version of the non-fiction book, Fast Food Nation. I've really liked some of Richard Linklater's movies though. (But not the freakishly animated ones. They scare me)

I really think this will be one of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time.

The Prestige is written and directed by the same guy who won me over when I saw Memento. Plus, Christian Bale is in it and I've thought he was cute ever since he was in that crap film, Newsies, in the early 90's. Preview

Hollywoodland is brought to you by the same dudes who did L.A. Confidential, which I loved.

Stranger than Fiction is Will Farrel's first non-naked (hopefully) role. I think this may be a sleeper.

p.s. Movie guys - Stop ruining all the things I loved in the 80's. This makes me sad.
